New York Live with Craig Mack & Half A Mil
First up out of the insane collection of Westwood tapes I recently acquired is this edition of New York Live, which was Tim's regular link up with Marley Marl. Craig Mack is in the house for the first part and then the late Half-A-Mil steps up. Both sessions include stupidly long freestyles (mostly off the dome on Half's part which serves to remind me how much I prefer someone busting pre written rhymes). In what is probably one of the more random things I've heard recently, Larry O (of Real Live) and TJ Swan both jump on the mic with him for a bit aswell.
This is the show that Tim recently posted video footage of, which isn't something that happens too often. Hopefully he's got more to come that will match up with these full shows I have.
Been considering creating a seperate site just for all these Westwood shows but we'll see how things go.
